That's why there should be considered six climate regions, excluding Alaska, Hawaii and outlying territories: Northwest Pacific, Mid/South Pacific, Midwest, Northeast, Southeast and Southwest.
California enjoys great weather during all seasons. The Northern California is cooler than the Southern California. In the same day, it's almost possible to catch warm sunny waves and free ski in the chilly mountains.
On the East coast of USA, you get a humid subtropical climate in North and Central Florida. This region is always affected by the hurricane season. El Niño and La Niña deeply affect Florida's climate.
The Hawaiian Islands, located in the Pacific Ocean, enjoy warm and gentle trade winds, mild temperatures and sunny skies. It is possible to travel to Hawaii in any month. The small annual variation in temperature range and length of the daylight period makes it perfect for surf tourism.
